Sometimes it can be hard to get ahead in the fashion game and as the seasons change you may feel that you’re just layering up mindlessly, instead of thinking through your outfit choices. But don’t rush to your jumper drawer just yet, because being warm doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. There are loads of options out there for stylish seasonal dressing, and Autumn through to Winter is a great time to showcase your on trend wardrobe.
By taking inspiration from the men’s AW16 catwalks, we’ve whittled down our favourite looks. From cosy tartan accessories, to edgy bomber jackets, here is our guide to a stylish season.
Knitted Polo Shirts
A knitted polo shirt is a must have wardrobe staple, as it’s lighter than a chunky jumper or a sweatshirt, making it perfect for layering up in. Opt for a block, autumnal colour that is versatile enough to take you through the seasons and you’ll be the best dressed at any festive event whatever the weather. Pair with smart trousers and loafers for a low maintenance look that will take you from day to night.
Detailed Bomber Jackets
There’s no doubt that bomber jackets have truly taken over the fashion scene of late. From celebrities to fashion bloggers, everyone that’s anyone has got one hanging up in their A/W wardrobe. The super on trend jackets pay homage to the traditional MA-1 style flight jacket made famous by Alpha Industries. Made from quality materials, they will definitely keep you warm in the dropping temperatures. Choose a stand out design with a bold print from a great style update, or opt for more subtle detailing for a hint at the trend.
Funnel Neck Jumpers
Funnel neck jumpers may soon be on the way to replace roll necks this season. Great for casual wearing, the button up style offers a unique take on the knitwear trend, whilst the thick knit style will keep the wearer warm all day long, making them a must have for any man wanting to upgrade his off duty look. Pair with jeans and trainers for a comfortable, yet stylish daytime outfit.
Taking inspiration from military outerwear has always been a menswear favourite for autumn and winter trends. Maybe it’s due to the fact that the style is not only fashionable, but incredibly functional too. The practical fashion trend often features the integral aspects of military designs such as high quality durable materials, and practical elements such as pockets and padding. Represent the trend with a utility jacket for a truly stand out style, or incorporate camouflage into your accessories for a touch of military inspiration.
Puffa jackets are everywhere this season, and it seems as though every year they’re getting bigger and better. If the oversized styles on the men’s catwalks aren’t your thing, there are still loads of great ones to choose from. Usually filled with down padding, not only will they keep you warm, but they’ll make you look super on trend too. Whilst bright colours and metallic bases are perfect for those wanting to stand out from the crowd, our collection of puffa jackets in subtle colours such as navy, black or burgundy will provide you with a more versatile piece for venturing out into the colder temperatures.
Checks are a must have for every man’s wardrobe this season. Whether you want to add some colour to your smart casual look with a discreet design, or make a statement with your winter accessories, checks are an outfit staple for any man at this time of year. An earthy colour palette of autumnal colours will certainly take you through the season.
Tracksuits take inspiration from 1980’s athletic wear, and not only are they comfortable and practical, they are incredibly stylish too. No longer just for the confines of the gym, there’s a way to wear a tracksuit for every man. If you’re wanting to add some luxury to your look, a velour tracksuit will certainly do the trick, whilst keeping you cosy all day long. Opting for a light grey marl tracksuit represents a more laid back style. If you’re not quite ready to venture out in the full two-piece, go for a sports luxe vibe and pair a track top or hoodie with a pair of jeans, or even tailored suit trousers for a more versatile look.
